PIG 05049: All the Products Made from a Single Pig

Designer Christien Meindertsma undertook a lengthy study looking at all the different products that can come out of a single pig.

We recently wrote about the winners of the Index Award 2009, one of which was the PIG 05049 project. Designer Christien Meindertsma undertook a lengthy study looking at all the different products that can come out of a single pig.  A surprising number of items can be made using elements of the animal: crayons, ammunition, food, brakes, chewing gum, porcelain, cigarettes and more. Meindertsma produced an exhibit of all the products along with a limited edition book, which is still available.
